You could have a problem with that oven temperature sensor probe, the clock control board in the console or the wiring harness between those components. The first image below shows a wiring diagram for the range and the procedure for opening the console. I recommend that you unplug the range and access the control board in that console. Check the resistance through that sensor circuit using a volt/ohm meter. Here is a link for a brief video that shows how to check oven temperature sensor probe resistance: Oven Sensor Testing . I recommend that you check the resistance of that sensor circuit from the control board in the console first. You should measure around 1091 ohms of resistance at 73 degrees F. If that sensor resistance if not correct when measured from the control board, you can access the sensor as shown in the second image below and check the resistance directly at the sensor. If that sensor is bad, then it will need to be replaced. You can order that sensor from this page: Oven Temperature Sensor Probe for Kenmore Gas Range 362.72320101 . Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components.

If the sensor resistance measured at the control board is good then you will probably need to replace that clock control board (part WB27K10141). Here is a link for that component: T08 Clock Control Board for Kenmore Gas Range 362.72320101 .

If the resistance measured at the control board is different than the resistance measured directly at the sensor probe, then you will need to check that wire harness. The most suspect location of a wire harness failure is the disconnect plug directly at the sensor probe. You may need to cut off that disconnect plug and connect those sensor wires using ceramic wire nuts.

There is a chance that a weak igniter in the oven could be causing some heating problems in that oven. Let us know if you suspect that type of problem and we will assist you with diagnosis and repair of that issue.

I hope that this information helps you resolve that oven problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this oven failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

A:

I am assuming the bake burner on your range does not light and you took the ignitor to Sears to get a new one.

If the broil burner is working, you can move the ignitor from the broil burner to the bake burner and see if the bake burner lights. Try the ignitor you removed from the bake burner on the broil burner and see if it works there. The ignitors are easy to break so be careful as you swap the ignitors.

If the ignitor is not glowing red when you turn the oven on, you might have a bad relay on the clock. You could also have a disconnected or broken wire to the ignitor.

If you have questions after making these tests, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

Thank you for your question on the gas range.

Without the model number of your range I can only give you some general information on why the oven will not work.

It still could be the igniter, which is what I think you may have brought in to have checked.

Did they tell you the reading of the igniter when they checked it?

If can fail when it heats up or can be weak and not do a good job of opening the gas valve.

Please let me know what you have found, and we can continue our troubleshooting based on that. Also please include the model number so I can be more precise with the answer.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
